Premier Cup - the history
The Premier Cup Competition was introduced at the start of the 1990/91 campaign after the restructure of the league and the inception of the Premier Division. The first ever winners of the trophy were Oldbury Sports who completed the league and cup double after beating Wall Heath Rangers 5-3.
An additional half hour of extra time has been needed, in three previous finals, in three consecutive seasons to decide the eventual winners in 1999, 2000 and 2001, with Coneygre Colts retaining the trophy in the latter two years.
Non league grounds that have staged the Premier Cup Final over the past years include, Handrahan Timbers, Willenhall Town's former Noose Lane Ground, Tividale Football Club and Brinsford Stadium, home of Wolverhampton Casuals. The 1998 Final between Sedgley White Lions and Brinsford was held in the grounds of Brinsford YO Prison for obvious reasons!
The Competition has been sponsored for the past few years with Hydraulic Spares & Services, Rotary Club of Wolverhampton, Surridge Sports, Balti Bazaar and more recently First 4 Staff, the current sponsors, who have kindly offered their support along the way.
An incredible eleven goals were scored in the 2000 Final between Coneygre Colts and Penn Rangers. The tie had finished all square at 3-3, before the goal laden match was settled 7-4 after extra time, in favour of Coneygre.
The biggest winning margin in a final saw Castle Youth defeat Sedgley White Lions by eight goals to one in 2011.
